Nicki Minaj’s husband has been granted permission to accompany her on tour overseas.

The “Super Bass” singer is out on the road on her “Pink Friday World Tour” and on Tuesday, District Judge Michael W Fitzgerald lifted a restriction that will allow Kenneth Petty to travel internationally from now until July 14, while still on probation for failing to register as a sex offender.

Documents obtained by People magazine stated: “(Petty) will keep his probation officer updated with the details of his travel itinerary as needed.

“At the conclusion of the travel, (Petty) must return to Los Angeles and he must check in with his probation officer upon returning.

“Mr Petty must also provide an itinerary to his probation officer prior to travel and follow all his probation officer’s directives,” the judge said.

His lawyer added in a statement: “The order granted by the court speaks for itself.”

Petty – who has a 3-year-old son with his wife – had requested the exception on Monday in order “to travel out of the country with his family for his wife’s tour and her professional purposes”.

The filing added: “(Petty) and (Minaj) believe (Petty) is necessary to accompany the family on the tour for various purposes, including childcare.” Noting the schedule included stops in Canada, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, France, UK, Austria, Ireland, Switzerland and Romania.

According to the documents, the government took “no position” after being notified of the request while his probation officer had “no objections”.
